Webinar series: Community and city resilience and Covid-19
The Emergency Planning Society’s (EPS) series of webinars will continue on July 23 with ‘Planning for recovery and renewal and getting the message right for our diverse communities’.
This session is aimed at strategic leaders, students, those studying within the field of resilience, crisis management, emergency planning and those who will be leading the recovery and renew strategy for Covid-19.
Speaking at this fascinating event will be Duncan Shaw, Professor in Operational Research and Critical Systems, and David Powell, visiting academic; both at the University of Manchester. Their talk – Planning recovery and renewal of our communities – will outline how organisations can build resilience partnerships to develop recovery strategies and ambitious plans for renewal of their areas.
The presentation will cover how to establish the basics of recovery, set up a recovery co-ordinating group, assess impacts from Covid-19 and implement recovery strategies.
The event’s second presentation will see EPS Branches Director, CRJ Advisory Panel member and internationally renowned hostage and crisis negotiator, Andrew Brown explore 'Navigating the crisis – how to communicate effectively across our many diverse communities'.
Using techniques and tactics derived from the world of hostage and crisis negotiation, Andrew will share the insights that help to craft and facilitate effective communication to reduce uncertainty and help communities navigate the global pandemic.
Jacqui Semple, EPS Chair, and Member of CRJ's Advisory Panel, says: “We have been incredibly grateful to our speakers throughout the series who have, and will continue to, explore recovery from a number of different fascinating perspectives including the physical and psychological human impacts, community displacement, economic factors, infrastructure, disruption to daily life and environmental issues.”
